The American Trauma Society’s – Trauma Registry and Data Council (TRDC) Presents a Trauma Registrar Educational Webinar on Wednesday, April 6th, 2016 from 1:00-2:00pm EST
"Investigating Trauma Registry Mapping Issues with NTDB/TQIP Submissions"
Cost: FREE for Members / $25 for Non-Members
With more and more focus being placed on the quality of trauma registry data being submitted to the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) and Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP). It is vital for trauma registrars to understand how data submissions impact trauma center's institutional risk-adjusted benchmarking reports used for national comparisons through the TQIP program. Trauma registrars should have a strong understanding of key data points such as complications and co-morbid conditions when uploading data submission.
During this webinar registrars will learn about the "drill down" process used by the Mayo Clinic Trauma Center and upon completion of the webinar, the learner will be able to:
1. Recognize the importance of investigations and monitoring trauma registry data mapping
2. Identify ways to validate data; in particular complications and co-morbid conditions
3. Recognize the impact of data submission on institutional risk-adjusted benchmarking reports
